Abstract (English)

"The evolution of Paul Mathieu’s ceramic practice is articulated over the history of its production. He does not simply make ceramic pieces, functional or otherwise, rather the fabrication is a part of his observation and interrogation of the place of ceramics and pottery in the world and in art. He has worked with serial production, commodification and the consequent questioning of originality and authenticity. The works in this exhibition have been produced in a factory in Jinghezhen, China, a city that has many factories and workshops that have been functioning for 1,000 years. Mathieu first visited this area of China eight years ago and returned annually to produce this work in the factories." -- Publisher's website.
